We are putting the â€śoceanâ€ť back into Oceanside! You get to experience the ocean and the harbor as we will be having a beach start and finish at the boat ramp inside Oceanside Harbor. Youâ€™ll get a chance to have a practice swim and then your friends and family will be able to â€śHang Tenâ€ť with you til your time corral starts.
The flow of the swim starts with a beach start navigating oneself thru the surf, then heading north towards the mouth of the harbor. This is approximately 4/10ths of a mile. Once thru the entrance, youâ€™ll head along the north jetty towards the fishing dock enjoying the swells that will lift you in a forward motion. As you round the north jettyâ€™s corner, youâ€™ll be heading due east so keep in mind that the sun is coming up and it will be bright. The boat ramp will be coming up on your right as you past the last red buoy.. The course is one loop and transition is located in the parking lot that starts at the boat ramp and goes north towards the Harbor Pelican where your family and friends can get a coffee/coffee drinks and breakfast.
